Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The C major work seemingly offers less scope for playing with the heart on the sleeve, but here too are the intimate hesitations and expressive shaping, even of the semiquaver passagework: nothing, however, without point or insight — Cohen's refinements are not superimposed but genuinely arise from the notes Mozart wrote. You may feel that this performance, in a direct, C major work, is wanting in energy and solidity; nevertheless it is perceptive and always musical. The famous slow movement is played slowly, but with a slender, singing line of considerable tenderness; and the finale has a pleasing glitter — the tone of Cohen's fortepiano is quite brittle and shallow, which separates it very sharply from the orchestral background. Read more There are some slightly odd, perhaps pretentious things in the cadenzas, and Cohen's habit of spreading, or at least not synchronizing, piano chords is sometimes a shade irritating. But these readings represent a price worth paying for what is a highly original, keenly responsive and perhaps incipiently romantic view of the music."
